4 stars out of 5 -- "Brian De Palma's melodrama has aged surprisingly well....Beautifully shot by Vilmos Zsigmond and with a towering score by Bernard Herrmann..."
"[I]t's hard not to respond to the sheer single-mindedness with which De Palma treats the material as a doomy, music-driven reverie....Still quite something."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Set largely in New Orleans, this incredibly atmospheric thriller has a southern gothic feel with its dreamlike photography and deliberate pacing. Often compared to Hitchcock's Vertigo because of its protagonist's obsessive attempt to recreate his lost love and the score by the incomparable Bernard Herrmann, director Brian De Palma's undeniable obsession with cinema results in a thrilling approach to a hauntingly familiar subject. Newly remastered.
Fifteen years later, the man has still not forgiven himself for what happened, and, while vacationing in Italy, he suddenly encounters a young woman who is the mirror-image of his dead wife. Is it just coincidence' Could she possibly be his daughter, somehow still alive and fully grown' The guilt-ridden husband becomes obsessed with this ghostly reincarnation, and his passionate pursuit of her leads to surprising revelations about his own past.
- Shot in Panavision.
